This should be fairly simple hike with no surprises.
Going up via Devils Slide.
Wayne is inspecting some bee’s activity.
On the other side is Suicide Rock.
Got to the Saddle Junction and this surprise.
The trails that we wanted to go are all closed. Everything east and PCT south is closed.
We are confused and going north.
Made it to Wellmans Divide for lunch.
John continues on. Where is he going?
We are off trail, so far so good.
Oops we are fighting the brush again.
Shelley is following me.
Out of the brush we are looking for John’s outstanding T.C.
Found it. Our hike and the effort is not in vain.
The other Marian bump with a register is over there.
On our way down is no brush we are going thru beautiful forest.
Back on PCT.
Going down to the saddle.
Lily Rock in evening sun.
All back at the cars. Burning the daylight.
